As you may have guessed from the title I'm not feeling the best in the world. The wonderful world of allergies decided I was feeling left out of all the sniffles that's going around and decided to share..I wish they hadn't. As I type I'm bundled up in bed with a box of Kleenex as my buddy. Pitiful I know. I've noticed that every time I set my mind to say "I'm gonna work out today!" something always happens!! Next time I say it I'll probably come down with Mad Cow (is that even around now? And no pun intended with the reference between me working out and the cow..okay maybe I'm the only one that got a chuckle out of that)
My weekend was greeeeeeeeeeeat. A bit rushed and I ended up having a really bad day (physically) Sunday so that kinda put a damper on things but hey it was just great to see that man :)
I haven't wrote much since probably Friday so Izzy and Miles are kinda stuck at the moment, but we'll take care of that tomorrow. I have been reading through and the last two books I've read have been about these macho women that are just like kick-your-butt kinda people with jobs that seem so cool, like being an FBI agent. I think there are a lot of reasons people read and it's not always simply for entertainment. Reading can inspire you, it can become your escape from reality, it can make you dream, and it can also help you see things you may not get to actually ever see in your life. (Today I've been exploring a ranch in Texas encase you're wondering.) I think the same goes for writing. It's an art that gives you the freedom to create whatever you want. I know some people that get their kicks and thrills from books, it's like their alter ego is coming out. (Now you know why I've been reading about butt kicking women with crazy jobs ;) jkkkkk :) ) I think my challenge in my writing is well.. I have quite a few but one is not getting to caught up in detail. I can be extremely detailed to the point that I miss the big picture and in writing you can't do that, unless you're Margaret Mitchell and can write a book that's 1024 pages long overflowing with detail and it still somehow become a classic, (The book is Gone With the Wind encase you didn't know and no I never finished it) but in reality that's not going to happen. Trying to read that book, and I made it less then half way, taught me about not having so much detail. You get so lost to a point that you forget what the main point of it was. When you read a good book you see it like a movie in your head, and if the author is good they give you a good story, with enough details to let you see the big picture but let you add some detail on your own. The reason I write isn't so I'll be published and become a classic author, sure that would be amazing and every person that writes hopes for that, but writing is an art. Artists that paint don't paint necessarily because they want to be famous and become the next Picasso, but they do it because they have a picture in their head they want to bring out and share how they see things with everyone else. That's what writers do, we have a story that we want to share. So we write. Or we try anyways ;)
Welp now that I have rambled on pointlessly for a considerable amount of time I shall end. So goodnight ♥

Refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies, heart skipping and never ending

Oh the joys of it being the weekend!!! I would say the skies are blue..but they are not.. Or that the birds are singing butttt their not. The winds are blowing, the sky is grey but there is a smile on my face! (Wow watch out here I'm turning into Dr. Seuss!) Anyways..You may ask the source of my joy and it comes from one special person who is driving 3 1/2 hours to see me :D yes he is rather amazing as I have said. Okay I'll stop now ;)

It feels weird not being at work at the moment..A good weird but still weird. I think I might get used to it ;) My brother is kicking us out tonight so he can have his little birthday party. As you see, I was not invited. It's a guys only thing apparently... Yeah I give him a few more years before he'll want to let me stay as long as I invite girls too. But then that would mean parents which I think is mostly the reason he is kicking everyone but his friends out tonight.
I figured you might all be curious about my cooking lately (and I think it's awful you just want to know so you can laugh at me) WELLLLLLL... I did attempt made from scratch cinnamon sugar cookies..and guess what, They were good!! I know it was shocking. I made a HUGE mess and only messed up once but mother saved the day so it all ended well. You know they really should tell you what kinda flour to use when you're cooking from scratch. I mean how was I supposed to know that you can't use self rising flour when you're also adding baking soda and salt to it? Luckily mom did catch my mistake before I dumped the whole thing in. I didn't even burn them :) Although the cinnamon did make them look like they had spent a long week at the beach without the tan lines.
In other news Isabella and Andrew are about to meet! (characters in my novel) I am super excited for his insulting her art and her insulting his lack of vision. I have two more characters fleshed out and ready to jump in so we are slowly getting there :)
My thoughts are pretty much on a happy high at the moment so excuse the slight randomness of this post. I hope you all have a fantastically amazing happy weekend!!!

Here we go again!

Hello darlings!! As you may have noticed this isn't the blog I had before (No duh) I decided it was time for some changes so we are starting all over from scratch. I figured it would take so long to catch up on everything from the last post on my old blog till this one it wouldn't matter very much anyways.
There are several very huge things going on in my life lately but I shall refrain from talking to much this one entry since it is just getting back into the swing of things.
1. I no longer work for the devil. I know HUGE relief..till I realized my bank account is running low and I won't get paid tomorrow. Something I'm trying NOT to think about at the moment.
2. I didn't get into the nursing program. Yeah :/ Which come to think of it I think in my other blog I had mentioned failing it the first time. So let me explain- I went back and took it again.I really really prayed about it. I prayed about it the first time I took it and prayed if I shouldn't do it then I wouldn't pass. As you will all remember I wasn't able to finish the test and had to get up and leave. Well instead of taking that as maybe oh I don't know a sign me and my mom decided I should give it another shot after an advisor called and asked me to please try again because my grades were so good. So I did..and I got an above average grade combined with above average grades and still didn't get in. That my friends was a God thing. I'm learning a LOT lately just how to lean on Him. My life kinda felt out of control the past two weeks because I gave up my job thinking I was positive I was getting into the program because of the grade and then BOOM I'm not and I'm jobless and have no plan B. (I know that really shocks you) Sooo I went and talked to my advisor yesterday and ended up having enough classes to graduate in December qualified to do two different jobs in the health care/business field. So once again God came through.
3. I'm getting a really good flow on my novel. FINALLY! I wanna do a little dance for finally feeling like it's going somewhere. True it's not where it should be as far as the written part but I finally have all my thoughts organized, my characters so detailed that they could step off the page into flesh form and that my friends is a huge step for me! After sitting in front of the computer for 5 hours I do feel rather accomplished :)
So these are the things that are happening in my life lately.. Just as a catching up. OH! and I'm dating this sorta amazing guy.. ;) I promise not to be super mushy and make you all sick at your stomachs :)
Well now that you are all caught up on my life I shall end this catch up with one funny quote from my baby brother Adam who is 5 and believes our brother Isaac is the fountain of all knowledge.
"Isaac did they have PlayStation 1 in the old days?"
yeah pretty darn cute ;)
Sweet dreams♥
